Educational Video on Clutches

As the title reads, just to help some of you guys out there who are not too sure about what type of clutch you want to get next or to replace the one thats on its last leg in that car of yours. This video covers everything you need to know about clutch material, pressure plate to lighter flywheels. I hope this becomes a sticky... sorta...

Not a prob, now I gotta get off my a$$ and post up the R32 GTR front brake conversion... I accidentally skipped taking a few pics during my swap, but I got majority of them LOL... Serioulsy, I did the swap about half a year ago. Thank God for California State workers and their dilligent work performance (or lack there of...)

This was great information because I just got a new clutch (6 prong ceramic) put in my car, and a lightened flywheel put in. It is a bit tougher to drive in heavy traffic, but I getting ready to put on a turbo kit...which makes this type of clutch necessary to handle the power put our by the engine/turbo. Thanks again for making this information avaliable.

PeaCe....btw - Practice random acts of randomness.
